last chance: Paul Wackers
@ Eleanor Harwood
february 16 - march 15, 2008
Paul Wacker's second solo show at Eleanor Harwood is titled "stand still like the hummingbird."
the show shares its title with a book of essay's by Henry Miller. i haven't read it (maybe you have?) i did find this excerpt from the preface on the web: "...when you are convinced that all the exits are blocked, either you take to believing in miracles or you stand still like the hummingbird. The miracle is that the honey is always there, right under your nose, only you were too busy searching elsewhere to realize it. The worst is not death but being blind, blind to the fact that everything about life is in the nature of the miraculous."
the show includes a lot of nice work, including "sculpture"
and "still life"
the gallery has all of the work here. better yet, get to Eleanor Harwood (alabama @ 25th) by march 15 and check it out in person before the show closes.
you can see my blog of his 2006 show here.
